Celebrating the immense potential for creative possibilities with the simplest of tools, The Weaver's Idea Book opens new avenues for exploration on both rigid heddle and multishaft looms. Covering a wide variety of techniques and tools, this book is perfect for weavers at all levels to achieve their textile dreams and make exquisite cloth.
Learn the tricks of the trade, from one who knows, including finger techniques such as leno and soumak to pick-up-stick patterns and two-heddle weaving. (Don't have a clue what these terms mean? Let this book be your guide.) The Weaver's Idea Book is arranged by structure or type of weave, from variations on plain weave to doubleweave. Each chapter contains patterns along with illustrative swatches and step-by-step photography. Plus, there are project ideas throughout, from wearables to home decor.
Weaving drafts for multishaft looms are included for all of the rigid heddle pick-up patterns - expanding the scope of this book beyond the rigid heddle loom. When you weave your own handwoven cloth. you can create unique fabric like no other. The Weaver's Idea Book shows you the infinite possibilities when weft crosses warp.
